I have been a very busy quilter lately. I head back to work on Wednesday so I wanted to get as much done as I could.
As you have seen on a earlier post I have joined Lorna's Dog Gone Cute Quilt hop and I am happy to say that I have been working hard on my Dog Gone Cute quilt and it was deliver to the quilter today! I can not wait to get it back, because it is just too Dog Gone cute!!! Here is another sneak peek.
Guinness is my super model with my quilt. You can read more about this quilt along that is happening now and the hop that starts in October here.
At the end of August I took a Long Arm Quilting class at a Shop near me Called Fabric Affair. What an intimidating class, but Michelle the owner of the shop is with you every step of the way when you bring your quilts in. This is the quilt that I brought in.
The pattern is an old one, Yellow Brick Road. The fabric is Woodland Summer by Holly Taylor. Here is a close up of some of my quilting.
I need to learn to breath, breath and did i mention breath! I also need to work on the length of my work space while using the machine. I might bring some tape to put on my quilt so I know how far down I can go. I also used minky for the backing and was told it was a lot harder to use the long arm with. So next time I will try just a cotton backing. This is going to be one warm quilt to keep me from freezing this winter!
I have attached the binding and will work on that this weekend when I travel to some soccer games with my daughter.
The next thing I did was sign up for a swap! I am very excited, I have never done a swap before. I do not want to post the swap in case my partner see this post and I will post what I get from the swap when it arrives.
I made a mug rug, pin cushion
and a little tissue holder.
Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all quilty hugs.
